Backup cluster settings

Use this page to configure a backup server cluster. The backup server cluster is used if the primary server cluster fails.

Configuration of a backup cluster is only useful if the cluster contains an EJB module and a client outside of the cluster uses the EJB module. To view this console page, click Servers > Clusters > WebSphere application server clusters > cluster_name > Backup cluster.

Backup cluster name

Name of the backup cluster. The backup cluster must have the same name as the server cluster that is containing the backup cluster. The backup cluster and its containing server cluster can have identical names because they must reside in different cells.
